2023 was a mixed bag for me.
On the bad side, I hurt my back badly and ended up having injections and going through 6 months of physical therapy. And then I got laid off as the company switched strategic visions.
But while there are difficult times there are also good things as well. I found a new job. I made some great connections in the process: at my former company, at my new organization and with some folks in between. In the therapy I learned some new exercises to put in my daily routine. My back is better and I returned to teaching Taekwondo, even with a slightly larger role.
But with all that going on I have had to step back a bit from my DEI. I looking forward to moving back into that space in 2024. I appreciate everyone who has read this blog and look forward to hearing from you in 2024.
So, I hope your hard times were few and your good times were many. I hope you got a chance to savor the good stuff and I hope your 2024 will have lots of good.
